Earth Day Comes to Campus Friday
Georgia Tech’s annual Earth Day Festival will take place Friday, April 19, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Tech Walkway.
The festival offers entertainment and fun, as well as practical resources. Here are a few reasons to attend:
Recycle Your Hard-to-Recycle Items
Old sneakers and electronics can be brought to the festival and dropped off for recycling. Shoes may be recycled at the Shoot the Shoes booth near the stage (no shoes with metal parts or cleats). Electronics such as cell phones and computers will be accepted at the electronic recycling station.
The stage will be filled with entertainment throughout the festival, including live bands, karaoke, spoken word performances, and the presentation of the Environmental Leadership Awards.
Booths to Visit
Ninety groups and organizations have registered to have a booth at the Earth Day Festival. Explore the booths to learn about the variety of Earth-friendly activities happening on and around campus.
Generous donations from the Georgia Tech community have stocked the clothing and office supply swaps. Bring your BuzzCard to partake in both opportunities.
The Earth Day Festival will be sharing free organic popcorn and T-shirts with participants until supplies run out.
